About my blog

Artist & Lecturer

When I first set out, my investigation was of the city I experience everyday. I considered my own and others’ relationships to it, I explored what external factors dictated and altered that movement. Architecture being one, it can limit where we walk, so we have to adapt and invent other ways as Michel de Certeau suggested this improvisation of walking privileges, even transforms and abandons spatial elements for us.

I increasingly found myself not thinking about reality but imagining a space in my mind, beyond body or matter. A real that is not quite real, or an actual real but a real whose reality is virtual and therefore imaginary. One that is not constrained by our reality, potentially, our will, and our desire is what governs this space, our only limitation being our imagination.

    Houxo Que- Live Painting Performance- Sat, 7th April, 2012

    I went to see a group exhibition in Jiyugaoka, Tokyo last night. One of the exciting Artists Houxo Que, who has worked with a number of high profile companies including Topshop and Apple internationally did a live performace piece. As you can see from the photographs he creates a luminous installation, combining florescent paints and UV lighting on canvas. This performance was created to live music, responding to the rhythm and emotion as he swirled the paint across the canvas and performed various mark making.

    Houxo Que was asked by TopShop in collaboration with Justokyo to produce Live Painting window displays for a large number of their flagship stores: including New York and many stores in the UK, see http://justokyo.jp/archive/topshop/

    In May, 2010 Houxo Que worked with Apple to create the Granimator™ , a free wallpaper creator available at iTunes, see him creating it here http://youtu.be/PYJaaQSqH-8
